The Lacoste x Li Xiaofeng limited edition polo will be available as a polo for men and women printed with a pattern similar as the pic above. Collar and cuffs will be blue to match the shade in the porcelain and the crocodile logo will be white.

Li Xiaofeng will first produce a porcelain plate with the Lacoste logo; he will then break this into fragments and reassemble upside down (a Chinese habit for good luck is to invert characters and images, especially on doorways to homes and temples) After that he will create a ‘Porcelain Polo and sculpture from colourful shards, with red, green and tints of gold, all from the Ming Dynasty.
A print of this will be used on a polo for both men and women, with the collar and cuffs printed. No additional logo would be required as it is printed from the original.
The original sculpture will be considered a super superlimited edition that Lacoste would purchase for its private corporate art collection

About Li Xiaofeng:
Li Xiaofeng was born in Hubei, China in 1965. He studied mural painting at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, where he now lives and works. He began exploring sculpture as his preferred art medium by using shards of Ming Dynasty porcelain to piece together classical Chinese garments.
He sources the fragments from a small village in the porcelain center of China, buying them by the kilo and then painstakingly assembling them piece by piece, cutting them into puzzle piece shapes that are threaded together with wire or in some cases knotted string. Like suits of armor, these heavy pieces of art can be worn.

The polo shirt will be available at the Concrete Image Store, Amsterdam soon!!

With the twelfth only being two days away, Concrete thought it be a good idea to give you an insight in the inspiration and design of one of the collaborators. For today we have for you: Bodega’s founder, who created a masterful version of Lacoste’s Broadwick – a court-inspired tennis cup shoe, and one of our most coveted styles. On the uppers, the Bodega design features a sophisticated woolen pin stripe in deep navy. Contrasting this rich tone, the tan leather trims around the heel tab, collar and lining give an overall feeling of refined styling and clean-cut elegance. Bodega’s signature is embroidered on the heel. Founder of the cult Boston sneaker store, Jay Gordon, talks about his design for Lacoste Legends collaboration project and his love of the brand below.

Drawing inspiration from the brand’s heritage in yachting, this all-new high-top blends classic Lacoste characteristics with signature Nash design elements including a moccasin cross stitch, hidden laces and fat perforations in the leather.

Lacoste unveils exclusive collaborations with drum and bass label Deep Soul Music (DSM) on the 16th January 2010.
Originally set up in the summer of 2006 to push the more soulful side of drum and bass from new and undiscovered producers, DSM now enjoys an internationally established reputation for breaking new talent around the world. Recognised for their forward-thinking nature and for pushing the boundaries in today’s music, the DSM ethos is of innovation and creativity. This perfectly mirrors the spirit of the Lacoste brand: the founding father, René Lacoste, was himself a keen innovator counting the polo shirt and the steel tennis racquet among his creations.
DSM have created a revamped design of Lacoste’s perennial classic MISSISSIPPI style. The design uses the unmistakable DSM colour mix of browns, rusty oranges and umbers. The upper materials combine suede, canvas and nubuck to create a luxurious feel and distinctly identify the shoe with DSM. Unique features include the reinforced-plastic crocodile logo on the heel and a DSM-branded in-sock. Two sets of interchangeable laces in brown and orange, complete with DSM-branded aglets are included with each pair. To commemorate this exciting partnership, eight exclusive tracks are being released with the shoe. They will be on a USB key within each shoebox.

These artists have contributed tracks to the compilation:
_ Ben E – UK _ Cern – New Zealand _ FX909 – France _ Nether – Australia _ LSB – UK _ Sinistarr & Stray – USA & UK _ Will Miles – USA _ Zyon Base – UK. In addition, a promotional CD has been produced featuring a mix of Deep Soul Music’s back-catalogue of releases. Skilfully blended by rising drum and bass star DJ Fu, this will also be available as a download.
Just 260 pairs of this limited-edition collaboration will be released with distribution in top sneaker stores in the UK, USA, France, Germany, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Spain and Italy.
